    Nice, that was unexpected :)

    Thought Kerrang would give them a 3 at best.

    No, that's 5. Still, this is a fantastic rating from Kerrang. I'm surprised and glad they liked it. Very well deserved rating. That last sentence sums it up perfectly.

    Ah, okay. :)

    From Kerrang!, though, I think four out of five is still a lot. ;D

    :lol: Indeed!

    I think the key part of that review is that the album is well constructed as it is well written. K! wern't too keen on MTM from what I remember so this review is a plus for the band for sure.

    WHY WON'T ANYONE ACKNOWLEDGE MY KU KLUX KLAN JOKE?!

    On a more serious note, that was a nice review. Very well written.

    Just to note, they score Meteora & MTM 3 K!'s, so this is definitely a step in the right direction. They're not always this generous, so it's good they like it.

    Much better than the last ignorant review.

    Side note
    Got a couple tidbits from Mike/Chester last night at the listening event.

    - Upcoming tour will consist of mostly arena venues!
    - VMA setlist on Sunday 9/12 will be more than 1 song. I said 6-7 and Mike said that it might be pushing it.
    - Possible plans for another art show next year.
    - Mike is excited to play WaK on tour and said the guitar parts should be fun.

    I'm freaking tired and am at work now. I can upload the 20 min video Q&A later if you guys want. Only 5-6 questions, pointless ones at that, were answered.

    Overall Laser show was badass!

    I think this is the best review so far and I'm not saying that just because I agree with it. I think it actually is better written and a better piece of journalism than the other ones I can think of.
